Good LifeThe last few weeks had done been easy. At every turn, it seemed Fate had decided to throw catastrophes in Michael's path. He'd grown more jaded about life, yet at the same time he had gained new incentive to change the course of his destiny. For now, he would have to stay in his family's keep until he had his own footing, but Michael was certain he could manage to free himself if he worked harder.
